Is anything added to the water? 

The Colorado Division of Public Health and Enviorment requires that all water facilities treat their well water with an anti bacteria solution. Because of this we are required to treat our well water with Sodium Hypo (chlorine). The operators check these levels twice a day to make sure that they are at the required level and also to keep the level as low as possible. If you do detect this when using water it can be removed by letting water sit out in an unsealed container and the residuals of chlorine will evaporate.


Is the water tested regularly? 

The District is required to test for Bacti twice monthly. Other test that are taken throughout the year are Nitrates & Nitrites, Inorganic Chemicals, Lead & Copper, Radionuclide, Synthetic Organic Chemicals, Volatile Organic Chemicals, Total Haolacetic Acids and Trihalomethanes. The Customer Confidence Report is listed on our web site and is updated every July. This report shows the results of testing and any violations that may have accured.
